Notice of Intent to Adopt a Rule
LSA Document #22-93

Under IC 4-22-2-23, the Indiana Board of Accountancy intends to adopt a rule concerning the following:

OVERVIEW: Amends 872 IAC 1-0.5-1 concerning definitions. Amends 872 IAC 1-1-2, 872 IAC 1-1-6.1, 872 IAC 1-1-6.2, 872 IAC 1-1-6.3, 872 IAC 1-1-6.5, 872 IAC 1-1-6.6, 872 IAC 1-1-8, 872 IAC 1-1-8.4, and 872 IAC 1-1-10 concerning requirements for certification, licensure, and registration. Adds 872 IAC 1-1-9.6 concerning education requirements. Adds 872 IAC 1-1-11.5 and 872 IAC 1-1-18.5 concerning examinations. The purpose of the rule is to allow accounting degree-bound students in Indiana to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam as administered in 55 jurisdictions and internationally without the timing and content restrictions under the current rule. In doing so, Indiana's top talent will be able to enter the CPA profession earlier and with a critical skill set identified for today's global marketplace. This alignment allows Indiana college students to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam before graduating and with fewer credit requirements (currently 150 credits moving to 120 credits to sit) while maintaining the licensure requirement of 150 credits. Statutory authority: IC 25-2.1-2-15.

Toby Snell
Board Director, State Board of Accountancy
